Reigi (Dojo Etiquette)
Although the facets of Dojo Etiquette are numerous, the following points are perhaps the most important the everyday student. • •

may be permitted to wear Hakama. This decision may only be made by the Junsei Ryu Hoshin Jutsu Council. Students are permitted to wear specialist training socks or boots (Tabi) during training. However students are not permitted to wear trainers, sandals or shoes. For outdoor training students are expected to supply their own Geta or Zori. In order to be accepted into a grading, all students are expected to attend in a clean Gi and Hakama (Where applicable). With either the Junsei Ryu Mon on the front of the Gi jacket or on the upper sleeve of one arm. When adjusting the position and state of ones Obi and Keikogi, the student should turn their back to the front of the Dojo, only turning back around once their clothing has been fully corrected.

All students must be able to recite and give a reasonable translation for the “Junsei Ryu Hoshin Jutsu Renmei Dojo Kun” The title “Sensei” is not automatically attained upon the obtainment of Sho-Dan (Black Belt), therefore one should be careful as to only address appointed instructors as Sensei. All Titles including that of Sensei are at all times to be rightly used as a Suffix. The correct method of address therefore should be “Ash Sensei” or “Ash Shihan”

As a simple sign of respect all Junsei Ryu students should learn to instinctively bow on the following occasions. • • • • • When entering or leaving the dojo building. When entering or leaving a dojo room. • When moving on or off the matted area of any dojo room. • After any sensei has formally addressed you within the confines of the dojo. When commanded to do so during the formal bowing in/out at the beginning and end of each training session. • •

Dojo Rules
The command of the Sensei is to be observed at all times. There will be no smoking, chewing gum or any other unseemly behaviour in the dojo. No student shall join or leave the class, whilst the session is in progress without the permission of the sensei in charge. No members will abuse, misuse or demonstrate their knowledge of Junsei Ryu Hoshin Jutsu to any person not authorised by Junsei Ryu Hoshin Jutsu to receive them. Strangle or sleeper hold must only ever be practiced under the strict supervision of the sensei in charge. Grading will only be held under the direction of the sensei with the prior approval of the Junsei Ryu Hoshin Jutsu. Any injuries carried prior to training should be reported to the sensei in charge before the student begins training. Should an injury be received during training then it must be reported immediately the Sensei in charge and recorded in the Dojo accident book. The Junsei Ryu Hoshin Jutsu may terminate a students membership at any time should their conduct become questionable.

The Way To Dress
• All Junsei Ryu students must train in a standard white Gi, cleaned and ironed before each training session. Senior grade instructors are permitted to wear a black Gi top. All students must demonstrate and adhere to correct belt, Gi and Hakama tying techniques. Hakama may be worn by senior instructors of Sho-Dan grade and above with the permission of the Junsei Ryu Hoshin Jutsu Council. On occasion students of less than Sho-Dan grade having demonstrated particular merit

The Grading System:
As with the majority of Gendai Martial Art Systems, Junsei Ryu Hoshin Jutsu utilises a Kyu-Dan (Coloured belts to signify the level of a students’ rank and ability). Although the number of grades can seem rather daunting, the Japanese use the phrase “Kaizen” which means “Continuous Improvement In Small Steps”.

Technique Types
Bushido (The Tenets Of A Warrior)
Within The Junsei Ryu we encourage students to look into the cultural and philosophical aspects of the art they are studying. Perhaps the most fundemental part of this study is that of Bushido (The Way Of The Warrior), A code of ethics laid down by Japans Feudal Samurai. Far from being a stringent code of conduct, Bushido can allow an individual to rationalise the chaos of their own lifes, to the benefit of all. From clan to clan the exact details of the Bushido code could change, the following example is that used within the Junsei Ryu.
